Omar-NC-Pak PM

Omar welcomes Modi’s move for inviting Pak PM

Prime Minister designate Narendra Modi today came in for praise from Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah and other leaders from the state for inviting Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to his swearing-in ceremony on May 26.

“Excellent move by Narendra Modi to invite SAARC leaders, especially Pak PM for his swearing in. Hope this is beginning of sustained talks,” Omar tweeted.

Omar, whose party National Conference and its ally Congress failed to win any seats in the state in the just- concluded Lok Sabha elections, however, wondered how BJP would have reacted to a similar move by Congress leader Rahul Gandhi had it been him who was the Prime Minister-designate.

“At the same time I can’t help wonder what BJP would have said if a PM designate Rahul Gandhi had done the same thing,” Omar said.

Peoples Democratic Party president Mehbooba Mufti also welcomed the move, calls it a ‘good omen’.
